    This is just a sick track. I have raced on it numerous times, and I go there every year. I am so glad this was brought back. I was dismayed to see it missing from FM5. Us Wisconsin folks, we must rejoice!!

    For a company so hell bent on stealing our wallets, they're doing a good job listening to the fan base offering a free track. :lol:

    I'm gobsmacked. I didn't think we'd see any track DLC for this game. I hope it's not the last and I'm glad I ain't completed my career yet.

    LOL They even have Professor Frink from the Simpsons working on the track (or at least his nephew Andrew).

    If we did not have the huge uproar that followed the release they probably would of charged us £7.99 for a track.

    Was hoping for the Ring but tbh at this point im just happy to see a new track!

    UkHardcore isn't the only one griping about this track if these odd comments from Satoru Iwata on the previous video are anything to go by :lol:

    They added my favorite Corvette too :3 I'm glad we get more tracks now, I was getting tired of using the same ones.

    And? My point still stands from the way people on here describe the company as thieves who don't listen to us. Clearly they do & have been.

    Now I know why my photos stopped uploading earlier. A treat that it's free and five free cars, too.

    FANtastic! Been there many times and on track for a few laps during Corvette and BMW club events. One of my favorites! But I don't understand, this is MS$$$ and T10$$$ :D

    One of my favorite tracks from the previous games; one I actually took the time to learn racing in without the braking line. Excited to see it back!

    Edit: I totally love how they added more career races! Having beaten all of the career races just a few days ago, this couldn't have come at a better time.

    I am absolutely in love with how tasty the lighting is in this game when the sun is higher in the sky. I was hoping to throw the Mach 1 around here, but I only had time to take a couple cars around it.

    Can't wait to head back to it when I've got more time.

    My Forza has been a bit cheeky. Decide to go through and do a couple of the career I have finished earlier and do the new RA races. I've come across a few of them that say I have already done RA but not Catalunya. Ha!

    Nice to have a new track. It feels bigger than the FM4 one for some reason, but that may be just me.

    Might buy the car pack too.

    Yup, I noticed the same. Some championships I had already (supposedly) completed Road America, but not Bathhurst or Catalunya...

    Haha, same here! I got all excited last night to take my Viper GTS-R out on RA to (re)complete the series, only to find it was Bathurst that wasn't complete.

    I cant even comprehend how many times I had arguments with idiots like that with all the free co-op Mass Effect 3 DLC. Amazing how people will argue about something not being free, when it is free. Just idiots.

    Something very similar to that happened with either F2 or Forza 3. The dlc was supposed to be a certain amount but the community voiced their opinion stating the price was too high, and T10 dropped the dlc price in half. So yes, T10 does listen to the community feedback. Even though I am still puzzled by some of the decisions in F5. But in their defense, it was a launch title for the new console. It will get better. And will be way better when F6 comes out.

    Its not free!
    The game costs money, its just a track that you payed for in advance.
    Since the number of tracks was horrible, its a good start.
    But would like to see more short curvy tracks! Please turn 10!

    We haven't paid any extra money for it, so it must be free!

    It can't possibly be free since you have to pay for electricity to power your TV and Xbox. T10 is just trying to make more money for the power company and you sheep are just eating it up!
